Association’s Eagle Cross Auction Benefits Ailing Colleague…

On June 10, PDR Nation held an auction to help out Tim Childers as he battles a return of cancer. Childers, a Vale Master Craftsman Certified Technician, is the owner of Pro Dent, based in Jacksonville, Illinois. His mobile PDR firm serves the greater Jacksonville area, specializing in repairing minor dents, door dings and hail damage.

An all-around great guy, Childers started his career in the mid-‘90s and has been a leader in the industry ever since. He is the current vice president of NAPDRT, as well as one of its founding members. If you’ve never met him, seek him out at next year’s Mobile Tech Expo. Finding such a truly nice and humble man in this industry is rare these days.

We extend our thanks to all the tool companies that donated great items and all the techs who participated in the auction. We were able to raise more than $7,000 that day, pushing the GoFundMe total past the $12,500 goal! The way this industry steps up to take care of one another never ceases to amaze, especially with such a slow start to the hail season.

Childers lives in Jacksonville with his wife, and is a proud father of three children and seven grandchildren. If you would like to contribute to the GoFundMe drive as he recovers from treatments, you can do so at the following link:
